Cold Sunday

Recent winter weather in the US has certainly been striking. While it’s certainly worse this time, I was reminded of a particularly cold day about 30 years ago.

On January 17, 1982, locations across the continental United States reported record-breaking low temperatures. So low, that it was labelled a disaster due to failed citrus crops in Florida. In the map below you can see some of the reported temperatures:
